Read About Dry Eye Syndrome

Even without knowing the term “dry eye” or “Dry Eye Syndrome“, if you suffer from it, then you are all too familiar with the soreness, discomfort, and even the constant misery that can come with dry eyes.

We use the most advanced diagnostic equipment and tools to quickly and accurately pinpoint the cause and type of dry eye problem you’re suffering from. We don’t just throw any old drops at you either. We provide custom, tailored treatment plans designed to maximize the relief of your dry eye symptoms AND treat the underlying cause of your discomfort.

Our dry eye doctor may conduct an in-depth assessment of indicators for other diseases and health problems which might be contributing factors to your dry eyes. Then we develop a personalized treatment plan based on what we find.

On every patient questionnaire, we ask if you are suffering from any of the typical symptoms of dry eyes. Do your eyes feel gritty? Sore? Do you feel like something is in your eye or that you just don't seem to have any tears? If you report symptoms of dry eye, or appear to exhibit those symptoms, then we recommend beginning the dry eye exam process, which is quick, easy, and painless.

There are many ways to treat Dry Eye Syndrome. The first recommendation is to prevent dry eye symptoms before they start, and to address lifestyle factors that may be making it worse.

Blink a lot and drink a lot. Avoid eye irritants, use lubricating eye drops if you are taking medication that puts you at risk for dry eye. Over the counter eye drops for dry eye are widely available. Maintain a healthy lifestyle with a focus on vitamins like Omega 3.

Question quotation

Q: If my 5-year-old daughter passed a vision screening at school, does she still need an eye exam?

Yes, she should still have a complete eye exam.Vision screenings in school are designed to identify gross vision problems. Yet a child can pass this screening and still have an eye condition that affects development, learning and performance in school.

Studies have shown that up to 11 percent of kids who pass a school vision test actually have a vision difficulty that requires treatment.In addition, a comprehensive eye evaluation by a qualified professional checks your child’s eye health, which is not included as a part of vision screening done in school.
